AgBiome’s Howler fungicide has received registration from the EPA.
The biological fungicide is designed to control diseases including Botrytis, Colletotrichum, Phytophthora, Pythium and Rhizoctonia. Howler fights disease with three modes of action: metabolic, enzymatic and exclusion by competing with invading pathogens. The active ingredient destroys pathogenic fungi, stops fungal development and protects plant surfaces, according to the company.
Howler is OMRI-listed for use in certified organic production and can be used at each phase of crop production with a zero-day pre-harvest interval and a four-hour restricted-entry interval.
